Cameron Urged to Sleep on the Job
- National Nap at Work Week set to tempt sleep-deprived Tory leader

Cameron Urged to Sleep on the JobTORY boss and new dad David Cameron has been urged to lead the way in National Nap at Work Week.

Cameron, like many new dads, has admitted to suffering from sleep-deprivation. "I have had better nights' sleep," Cameron said soon after the birth of his and wife Samantha's third child, Arthur, last month. With two other kids under five years of age, sleep deprivation is likely to be an on-going problem for the would-be Prime Minister.

Many sleep experts state that taking an afternoon nap of less than an hour improves performance at work. The trouble for most of us is that there is nowhere at work to catch forty-winks. TV coverage of parliament reveals that back bench MPs aren't shy of dozing off on the leather-bound seats, but that option is more limited for front benchers like Cameron.

Campaigners for at-work sleep-facilities think they have the answer. "We reckon the opposition leader would be able to have a quick, comfortable, unobtrusive nap under the front bench helping him to stay on top form at this exhausting time," said a spokesperson for travel-bed maker Worlds Apart, which backs National Nap at Work Week.
